RMF By-pass filters are specially designed for mobile hydraulic installations and are available in single or double units which are equally suitable for OEM use and retro-fitting. The By-pass filter comes equipped with an integrated pressure compensated flow control valve. This valve bleeds oil from the main hydraulic system, passes this through the filter and then returns it to the hydraulic reservoir.
RMF Systems radial micro filter units are characterized by their extremely efficient filter elements with a fineness of 0.5 micron. If required, different micron sizes are available to suit any specific application.
The By-pass filters can also be equipped with special water absorbing prefilters in case of extreme water contamination, these water absorbing spin-on cans will remove most of the water prior to the fluid reaching the cellulose element .
The hydraulic market accepts that 80% of mechanical failures are caused by contamination in the system. The RMF By-pass filters attack this contamination at source and in addition to solid particles, these filters are also capable of removing water from the oil. This prevents the catalytic reaction of water and solid particle contamination, resulting in extended useable oil life.
The use of RMF filters means less defects, less maintenance, and less wear and tear of the hydraulic components.
RMF By-pass filter units can be fitted to every imaginable mobile application where hydraulic and/or transmission systems are present. Installation is very simple, the filter housing provides mounting slots on all four sides and the pressure and return connections are available on the side and the back of the By-Pass unit.
In recent years RMF Systems have developed a great deal of experience in cleaning and keeping clean hydraulic and transmission systems on: excavators, wheel loaders, forestry machines, asphalt machines, concrete pumps, aviation ground support equipment and agricultural machines.
